A Real Gem on the north shore

  • 5 of 5

Booked this place last minute, we found the communication with host and owner to be very easy and smooth.

Noticed some negative reviews when we booked, but found the cottage to be incredibly clean and no signs of neglect. Owner stopped by to say hello and said they hired new cleaning service due to some bad feedback, their new caretaker did a good job upon our arrival. What we found to be the best part of this beautiful home was the LOCATION !! A quick 4 minute drive to Haleiwa town where we found Hawaiian food trucks,

the famous surf shops, many great dining options, this is such a cute and charming little village that we made a point to go there every day.

This house has insane postcard views, comfy bed, exotic design that was incredibly romantic and made our vacation extra special.

Beach is steps away and wow, words cant describe just how gorgeous those blue lagoons are right out front. Like we were in Fiji or Tahtiti.

Thank your for hosting us and thanks for the free snorkel gear... we saw loads of fish and even a couple of large sea turtles !

The property was awesome and the view great. We hope to stay there again

The property was well kept and clean. The view of the property was awesome. The only thing disappointing was that the hot tube did work and there needs to be better lighting on the stairs

Honeymoon Stay

  • 4 of 5

Was a great stay on North Shore during part of our honeymoon.. One big thing to note (that I either overlooked or it wasn't mentioned) is that this is a SHARED property, meaning there are other families/couples staying at the same house. There are different sections of the house so its not like everyone is sharing a kitchen, but it was still more intimidating/awkward sharing the downstairs beach/lawn/hottub with other people nearby and/or watching. Also to note, we arrived with our TV not working and the Help said they would replace it, which they never did. Lucky we were on our honeymoon and didn't care too much about the TV but it should still be noted.

Now, the location was pretty awesome. Located at the end of a private road, and you pretty much have your own beach. Sunset on North Shore is unlike anywhere else in the world. Pretty awesome views. Foodland market is a couple miles away so it is definitely a cook-like-you-are-at-home stay.

I probably wont return to this house due to the shared-property (call us introverts but we like our OWN house if we are paying this kind of money) but It was a good stay for the price.

Owner's Response: The main house has a downstairs home (2 bed /2 bath ) with it's own separate entrance, separate parking, and it's own path down to the beach. The hot tub is meant for use by downstairs guests. The Upstairs unit is a Balinese Beach Cottage, has it's own gate, own separate entrance. Guests here have their own beach path as well, so you don't run into other folks while walking on short path to the sand. Beaches in Hawaii are all public, there is no such as thing as private beach (even at Four Seasons Resort, or Hyatt). Same applies at any beach in Oahu, and other islands. The way the home is set-up, there should be no interaction whatsoever between guests in downstairs larger home, or the upstairs cottage. The only "shared" items are free use of snorkel gear, boogie boards, kayak, etc.

Stunning Views Make Up For a Few Property Issues

  • 4 of 5

The view and location is amazing, words or photos cannot describe how breathtaking it is. With direct access to a quiet beach, including lagoon, it really is like staying in paradise.

The property itself is showing signs of aging and certainly isn't 5 star worthy. It's a shame as the issues are mainly cosmetic (cracked window panes, door locks not working, old shower). The owner was responsive to the issues we did have and did repair or replace most issues, although the hot tub was out of action for the entire week we stayed.

But even if the property was a tent on top of a roof I think I'd still recommend staying here.....just for those views and that beach.

Beautiful and convenient location

  • 2 of 5

5 stars for an exceptional view and location. If I was reviewing the stunning views alone, I would give a solid 5 stars.... but lets be honest, Oahu is a gorgeous place and just about anywhere you go you will find a breathtaking view. My review is based off overall experience, which was much less impressive. It is important as a potential renter to know that this particular house is divided into 3 different portions, all of which are rented separately. Although this location is beautiful, the serene "privacy" factor soon escapes when you add other strangers into the mix. The "common" area and the sharing of a hot tub was a little awkward and unexpected.... especially when one of the guests is possesive of the water hose.... anyway, I was unplesantly surprised by this. Renter beware that although it technically "sleeps" a max of 4, the bedroom and bathroom are completely open so there is absolutely no privacy. This should be advertized as a studio for 1 or 2, and it should also be noted that your space is shared with strangers who are equally as annoyed and surprised as you are.

Seondly, cleanliness was an issue. I understad the concept that this is a cottage style laid back type of vibe, but that doesn't mean you should slack on clean sheets or dishes. The furniture and pillows all had a gross amount of stains. There were bed sheets wrapped around the couch cussions which all contained yellow and brown stains. Replacing the sheets and curtains sounds like a good place to start. Also, I'm not sure why they would mindlessly wash and put away the dishes but I think it's also time for either a deep clean or an upgrade.

Overall, this cottage is aesthetically pleasing and we had a good time enjoying the beauty of the North Shore, but there is always room for improvement. As a renter, it would also be appreciated for everything to be more clearly explained as far as the arrangement with the other units and the layout. Beyond that, gorgeous home with a stunning view.

Best Location in Oahu

  • 5 of 5

This is the most incredible location you will ever find for a stay in Oahu. You are at the end of a little road so that you don't have any neighbors on one side & have your own (almost private) beach at your door step. The house next door is not too near either. There is a little protected pool/mini-lagoon right in front and a reef so that you can snorkel around too. Giant sea turtles feed on the rocks in front almost every day. Sharks Cove, Three Tables, Waimea Valley, the shrimp trucks & Haleiwa are almost right around the corner. Great grocery stores, shops & restaurants are near in either direction. Trust me... I have stayed at places all over Hawaii & you can not beat this location (& definitely can not beat this view.) Poke from either grocery store is a must buy. We bought a bunch of prepared food from the grocery stores so we would not have to cook.

By the way... I am dumfounded that the other person who left a review complained about insects & rust. Uh... it is a beach house that opens up to the outdoors. Of course there will be bugs. And... It is right on the water. It's impossible for things not to rust. If you want an immaculate hotel where you have to walk blocks to sit on a crowded beach then, by all means, you should stay at a hotel in Waikiki. If you want your own slice of paradise pretty much all to yourself then you can't do better than this. I have stayed in vacation properties all over the world (including all over Hawaii) & have never found a better location anywhere. All the places by the water had sea spray & some rust. Every place that was even semi-open to the elements had bugs. I think some folks have unreasonable expectations & then try to find every little thing wrong with a place in the hopes they can get some money back. The place was clean, the owners answered every question quickly + they provide a kayak, snorkeling gear, surfboards etc. I paid almost as much for a tiny place nowhere near the beach & not close to restaurants etc. on another part of the island. The location makes this place. I will definitely recommend it to other folks.
